Subbing frozen berries for fresh

I realize this is a bizarre question to ask in the middle of summer, but if a recipe calls for say, 6 oz of fresh berries, what weight of frozen berries should I use? In terms of volume, I have generally just used one cup frozen for one cup fresh, with no problems, but I don't know if weight is different for some reason. I suppose it shouldn't be, but is there some reason you'd somehow "attract" liquid in the freezer, which would skew the weight upward? Does this make any sense

I just do a 1 to 1 substitution. Frozen berries release juice more easily because the ice crystals puncture their cell membranes, but I don't think they attract extra water in the freezer.

That makes sense. Good, I don't have to do any math!

No difference. You may need to compensate for the extra liquid, depending on what you're cooking/baking.
